HELP - health and safety issue
I live in SFA and my 18 month old son somehow managed to climb onto his bedroom window ledge. on doing this he lent on the window and due to no child safety locks being fitted he fell and broke his leg. all the houses around me have safety locks fitted and I was not made aware mine didnt. does anyone know what the regulations are on this ?

Oh my fecking god! I hope he is on the mend, very lucky all things considering. I have kids of my own and that doesn't bear thinking about.
Get a good solicitor. Check to see if the other houses requested the safety locks be fitted, and whether or not it is in your SFA contract, much like room dividers (Not allowed to call them stair gates any more), "if you want them ask" sort of thing. Common sense says there should be some sort of restriction on the windows, but then rules and what they can get away with are totally different.QRM - 5

Did you not make yourself aware they were not fitted whenever you looked at the windows and didnt see any? Seems there is a bit of parental irresponsibility here too. I do despair where people immediately look for someone to blame, there has been a problem, get it solved and let's all hope that little one remains safe and isnt left on his own too long again to get into that sort of mischief, who would you have looked to for blame if he had simply shut his hand in the bedroom door and broke his fingers while on his own?The role of cavalry in war is to bring style and panache to what would otherwise be just an ugly brawl.

why was he not in his cage? do they not use playpens anymorewhat the world needs is an enema, make that two - just to give it a sense of purpose.
US electoral democracy is just a structured system of legalised bribery.
a senior Chinese officer has said, “all the great nations in the world own aircraft carriers – they are symbols of a great nation”. That’s why China has just commissioned its first. By the same token, to opt for a “carrier gap” of some years is to abandon your responsibilities.

Firstly, you need to report it to the MHS helpdesk on 0800 number, and ask them to raise job for child restrictors to be fitted.
Secondly, where do.you live.

This is just ridiculous! The Woking Council have a stand outside the Library for some housing initiative. Santa's there with four helpers... and they're all wearing happy little elf outfits... with fecking hi-viz jackets. It's a pedestrian zone FFS! Litigation and H&S culture gone bonkers. Rant over.- Si dubitas, fuge.

As has been said, didn't you think to check the windows, or ensure that your 18 month old child wasn't able to climb out of the window?"You can tell a man that boozes by the company he chooses,"
Then the pig got up and slowly walked away.
